The bridge was originally proposed when Oracle announced a $1.2 billion tech hub on Nashville’s East Bank.

Nashville is getting an early look at a proposed pedestrian bridge over the Cumberland River.

A conceptual rendering released yesterday visualizes the bridge connecting Oracle’s forthcoming East Bank campus (near Cowan Street) to Germantown. Plans for the pedestrian bridge were announced in spring 2021 when the tech company shared its vision for the $1.2 billion tech hub.

The cost of the bridge and when it could be constructed are not known at this time, but Oracle has reportedly committed to funding $175 million for infrastructure work on the riverfront. This includes the pedestrian bridge, greenways, and road improvements.
